Default Levi Brown and David Johnson on IR

That trade is working out awesomely! Find us another LT!

Quote:
The Pittsburgh Steelers placed offensive tackle Levi Brown and tight end/fullback David Johnson on the Reserve/Injured List, the team announced today.

Brown (triceps) was in his seventh NFL season and was acquired via a trade with the Arizona Cardinals on October 2, 2013. He started Arizona’s first four games this season but did not appear in a game with Pittsburgh.

Johnson (wrist) was in his fifth season with Pittsburgh and had appeared in all five games this season, making two starts and catching four passes. For his career, Johnson has appeared in 52 games, starting 26, and recording 22 receptions for 216 yards and one touchdown.

To fill the roster spots, the Steelers signed free agent tight end Richard Gordon and promoted cornerback Isaiah Green from the practice squad.

Gordon (6-4, 268) is in his third NFL season and was drafted by the Oakland Raiders out of the University of Miami in the sixth round (181st overall) of the 2011 NFL draft. He appeared in 27 games for Oakland, starting two contests and registering three career receptions, one for a touchdown. Gordon also appeared on special teams, making 17 tackles and recovering a fumble. Oakland released Gordon on August 31, 2013. Gordon will wear No. 44.

Green (5-10, 180) is a first-year player who has spent time on Pittsburgh’s active roster and practice squad this season. He was on the Steelers’ 53-man roster during Weeks 3 and 4, but was inactive for both contests and has yet to appear in a regular-season game. Green will wear No. 39.

Heckuva job on the Brown trade

Since Spaeth comes back at some point I assume the TE signing is temporary

If they needed a LT candidate last week they still need one this week

Hate to say it but I think they need to give Max a call

might as well, if anything else as insurance for this year - I don't base my judgement of him on other teams cutting him - his leadership/experience alone for these fellas would be valuable - and no you haters, you can't overate leadership at all

question is - does he want to come back or do they want him back? Ben could be possibly lobbying for him as we type . . .

lose a tackle and sign a TE? Tomlin is going to unleash hell on the team doctor for the physical on Brown.

Tomlin's press conference this morning......'obviously I will now be in the room helping conduct the physicals and will be telling the guys when to cough'.

Okay, I got it. Fuck the tackle position. Put in our two best guards and the long snapper. The remaining 7 are WR's. Ben stands about where the punter would be. Go from there:


WR WR WR G/LS/G WR WR WR WR

Do you think this trade will be investigated by the league? Maybe it's coincidence? but it seems a little fishy to me. Was he having issues with the arm prior to the trade?
